It was a gala evening of art, music, food and libation at the Black Squirrel in Pemberton.
After an absence of four years, the Pemberton Arts Council (PAC) brought back Mountains of Art (MOA) to an enthusiastic response. The party celebrated our amazing and talented local artists. It was a chance to get to know the artists and support their work.
Funds raised by the event will help create a scholarship for an up-and-coming student of art. PAC couldn’t have realized the event without the generous partnership of Scotiabank and WREA (Whistler Real Estate Association). Thank you!
As well, we were blessed with gifts from Susie Cipolla, Vanessa Stark, Dave Steers, Tom Thomson, Patti Kirkpatrick, Audain Art Museum, Gretchen Firth, One Earth Collection, Roz Stanton, Bill Reynolds, Our Glass Works, Sharon Cipp, Karen Love and the Pemberton Distillery for our art auction.
Local restaurants showed their generous support with gift certificates to support our cause.
Thank you to Grimms Deli, the Pony, Mt. Currie Coffee Company, Fish and Rice, McDonalds, Centennial, Black Squirrel, and Back Country Pizza.
Mountains of gratitude to Mike Kirkpatrick, Susan Medville, Rob Megeney, Kevin McLeod and John Corrigan for all your help. The beautiful displays were orchestrated by Karen Love and Gretchen Firth.
Our hardworking PAC Board of Penny MacLean, Karen Love, Bill Reynolds, Patti Rogers-Kirkpatrick, and Judy Bourhis went above and beyond to create and deliver MOA.
Most of all, thank you to all the folks who came out to support art in our community!
President, Pemberton Arts Council
